The Infection Control RN will also get frequent opportunities to work with external stakeholders and partners within the community and city to assess trends in population health and limited aspects of epidemiology.

The San Francisco Bay Area is well known to have something for everyone. The artistic type, the gourmand, the outdoors person, and the home-body will all find something comforting. Contemporary street art, murals, galleries, and public installations adorn the streets just about everywhere you look. Hundreds of acres of coastline, nature trails, and parkland surround one of California’s most beautiful cities. With Silicon Valley and San Jose a short distance to the south, Stanford, UC Berkeley, and some of California’s best primary schools, the Bay Area is a great place for the Infection Control Prevention Specialist to build a community and continue learning. Connected by Bay Area Rapid Transit and one of the nation’s best networks of buses and light-rails, you’ll find that it’s easy to get where ever you’re going.

You’ll have a large responsibility of the quality and efficiency of the medical center’s operations and mission, but that’s exactly how you like it. You’ll also be supported by a generous benefits package and a competitive compensation.
